Bosworth Announces Press Conference… or Strip Club?

Last updated on 2015.08.02

Annette Bosworth may be getting down to the bare essentials of her fake U.S. Senate campaign with her latest press conference. Tuesday's event comes scantily clad in the following teasing release:

The location of the press conference will be released on the day of the event.

Due to graphic matter only adults 18 years of age and older will be allowed to enter [Bosworth for Senate campaign press release, downloaded 2014.05.26].

Such titillation is an obvious ploy for attention (dang—it worked). But seriously, what content could a genuine U.S. Senate candidate have to discuss that would not be appropriate for minors... assuming any children in Sioux Falls were planning on attending a political press conference?

Maybe Bosworth plans to throw another striptease... like the one she staged in the Sanford Hospital lobby a few years ago.

Assistant Attorney General William Golden described Bosworth's strange behavior in his argument before the South Dakota Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners on November 28, 2012. Golden was discussing a psychologist's plan of treatment for Bosworth's "narcissistic traits." Golden summarized one short-term objective of this treatment:

"To get Dr. Bosworth to have a commitment to honesty. He is treating her to get her to tell the truth, have some humility. This is her psychologist and her treatment plan, trying to get her to tell the truth" [William Golden, argument before South Dakota Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners, Sioux Falls, SD, 2012.11.28].

Golden proceeded to contend that Bosworth had great difficulty achieving that treatment goal:

Why is this important? Because for two and a half years we have been hearing the same things over and over and over again. Denials about what was going on with the Board. Complaints that we clearly had absolute proof on. She wouldn't tell the truth about them over and over again. Therapeutic intervention. "Teach the client that honesty is essential for intimacy and explain how lies lead to interpersonal frustration." He is trying to get her to quit lying.

It goes beyond that. When you're telling these lies, and you're doing it to make yourself look important, the other thing that is going on is Dr. Bosworth uses these lies to tear other people down. She does a lot of harm with them [Golden, 2012.11.28].

Golden recalled testimony from Bosworth at a November 9, 2012, SDBMOE hearing, in which, under questioning from her attorney Joel Arends, Bosworth flatly denied a claim that she "ripped off your shirt and ran through the hospital lobby with your bra on." To demonstrate Bosworth's untruthfulness, Golden entered into the record a tape of an interview involving Bosworth, her prior attorney Brett Lovrien, and Don Srstka of the AG's office, in which Srstka and Bosworth reviewed the behaviors that led to her being required to submit to treatment in a Kansas mental health facility:

MR. SRSTKA: Is there anything else that happened at that office south of Bracco's that you want to tell us about that made you -- relates to this problem that you had with them?

DR. BOSWORTH: I can go into several stories if you want me to. I will if you want me to.

MR. SRSTKA: Well, sure.

DR. BOSWORTH: I took my shirt off once. The photo shoot was at the bottom of a foyer. There was a second level where we work. Come to the elevator and then there is the photo shoot down there where all the gals are at. So I was wearing an outfit that is typical for women where you wear a jacket, but you just have your underclothes on under them. And get to the top of the elevator and I took off my jacket and I threw it over the edge. And I hopped in the elevator and I rode down in the elevator with just my bra and the rest of my clothes on, the door opens, and I said, 'I was told to dress professionally'" [recorded evidence, presented to SDBMOE 2012.11.29].

It's hard to say what sort of exhibitionism will come from tomorrow's adults-only press conference. But reporters, if you bother to get the password and show up, for Pete's sake, don't comment on what Annette is wearing. We wouldn't want anyone's children to see a repeat of that performance.

    Wait... I thought she was tested, trusted, and conservative... Doesn't sound too conservative too me!

  2. Rorschach 2014.05.26

    Some celebrities have made porn videos for fun and profit, and other wanabees have made them to become celebrities. She's a bit old to get started in the business, but I don't see the crazy lady being deterred by age. Wait for "The Dr. Will See You Now" featuring HeckAnnette, comimg soon.

  3. Roger Cornelius 2014.05.26

    She will out the gnome that deletes and bans readers from her her faux Facebook accounts.

  4. Jackilope 2014.05.26

    Wondering if she still has the cardboard cutout of Rounds and if that will somehow play into the graphic content press release theater.

  5. Bill Dithmer 2014.05.26

    It was overcast and dreary in the Mormon state that day
    They knew they were in trouble
    They knew they couldn't stay

    The birds would all stop singing
    Whenever they walked near
    The flowers would turn black and white
    And wilt some say from fear

    We have to go we can't stay here
    Said Chad to his Annette
    We've got legal problems all around
    But they ain't got us yet

    Let's move back to South Dakota
    Say, dont your folks have land
    We can make a brand new start
    We'll start a brand new scam

    You can practice medicine
    I'll keep doing what I do
    The people there are pretty dumb
    And it's a red state to

    So they packed up and then moved north
    To live in Sioux Falls town
    Bos started a new practice
    Chad looked for what could be found

    I think we'll have some raffles
    But only one will pay
    We'll pretend that we're religious
    I think we'll do ok

    So Chad did this and Bos did that
    They new what they had to do
    They screwed everyone they met
    And even some they knew

    But then things started going bad
    They lost their place to live
    They moved in an old rv
    With kids there werent much give

    But they still found ways to travel
    On other people's doe
    Alaska Haiti and the Philippines
    They put on a real good show

    With all this good publicity
    There's more that we could do
    You could run for US Senate
    We might make some money to

    Things didnt get no better
    They refused to pay their bills
    They started loosing employees
    The practice was just ell

    The senate race never went no place
    For the Bosworth team
    It pissed em off when they realized
    People weren't as stupid as they first seemed

    Days went by and months went by
    They were mad enough to shout
    But even friends that they still had
    Knew what they were about

    Then came the investigations
    It was everyone else's fault
    The campaign just kept going
    The sideshow wouldn't halt

    I guess god still gets upset
    If you tell enough lies
    He can silence all the birds
    And put rainclouds in the sky s

    Annett dear we can't stay here
    Of this I have no doubt
    I think we should move far away
    The mighty Chanett has finally struck out

    Please somebody tape this and put it in the youtubes.

  7. Deb Geelsdottir 2014.05.26

    Hahahaha! Bill Shakespeare, er Ditmer, has written another classic!
    Thank you, Blindman, for creating a far more coherent narrative than Chanette ever has.

  8. mike from iowa 2014.05.26

    Bosworth homeschooling the kids and if so,what are they proficient at-rolling drunks?

  9. grudznick 2014.05.26

    Dr. Bos could gain a lot of votes Andrew of these likes on the tubes and facebooks if she did a repeat performance.

  10. Bree S. 2014.05.26

    She will start a new website to fight human trafficking, which will be where you can give her your email for updates and will be able to donate to the cause.

  11. caheidelberger Post author | 2014.05.26

    Bill: brilliant! Indeed, we should get a video of The Blindman reading this poem aloud, while Rick Weiland (or perhaps a Madville Times reader not on the ballot) plays desperado guitar in the background.

    Kurt: you have a strong macabre streak. Let's not even think such things. Bree most likely has the press conference pegged. Just another ploy for attention, exploitable contacts, and distraction from her and Chad's crimes.

  12. Deb Geelsdottir 2014.05.26

    Bree, you are probably closest to right about tomorrow's conference.

  13. Kal Lis 2014.05.26


    Very humorous effort as always, but if you're going to adapt parts of "Casey at the Bat," writing about Haber/Boswrth demands preserving the line "And the former was a lulu and the latter was a cake"

  14. Rorschach 2014.05.26

    Well done, Blindman. Not just medium well, you burned them to a crisp.

  15. Douglas Wiken 2014.05.26

    And just in time the joke in my email today.

    Black Bra & Heels (as told by a woman)
    I had lunch with 2 of my unmarried friends.
    One is engaged,
    one is a mistress,
    and I have been married for 20+ years.
    We were chatting about our relationships and decided to amaze our men by greeting them at the door wearing a black bra, stiletto heels and a mask over our eyes. We agreed to meet in few days to exchange notes. Here's how it all went.........

    The other night when my boyfriend came over he found me with a black leather bodice, tall stilettos and a mask. He saw me and said, 'You are the woman of my dreams...I love you.' Then we made passionate love all night long.
    Me too! The other night I met my lover at his office and I was wearing a raincoat, under it only the black bra, heels and mask over my eyes. When I opened the raincoat he didn't say a word, but he started to tremble and we had wild sex all night.
    When my husband came home I was wearing the black bra, black stockings, stilettos and a mask over my eyes. When he came in the door and saw me he said,.......................................................................................................................................................................... " WHAT'S FOR DINNER, ZORRO?"

  16. Roger Cornelius 2014.05.26

    Blindman, You hit that one out of the ball park, congratulations.

    Why is that every time I read of Chad and Annette's scams, I can't get the music from The Sting out of my head?

  17. Deb Geelsdottir 2014.05.26

    That is pretty funny Doug.

    It sounds like the married couple have done things like that often enough that it's no big deal. Note that she doesn't say what happened after that. When you have great sex often, it doesn't require additional mention.

    I'm sure that's not quite what the joke writer had in mind, but it's probably closest to true.

  18. Ryan Gaddy 2014.05.26

    I will have full press conference for Madville tomorrow ;)

  19. Bree S. 2014.05.27

    Will you be playing your smash hit "Follow The Prophet" as an intro for Dr. Boz, Ryan?

  20. Bill Dithmer 2014.05.27

    Thankyou thankyou. Now on to more important things.

    Folks, you just can't make stuff up that comes close to being as good as these peoples life stories. If I was twenty years younger there wouldn't be anything in this world that could keep me from writing this screen play. That leaves it up to one of you to just do it. I can guarantee that for a years research, and moderate writing skills you would be richly rewarded. This is not a could be thing, it's the real deal.

    Let me help get you started. Think med school, and then think classmates. All it would take is research.

    The Blindman

  21. mike from iowa 2014.05.27

    Oh please,Blindman. When I think Bosworth,my hearing aid pukes.

  22. Danno 2014.05.27

    Bravo to the Blindman!

  23. Tara Volesky 2014.05.27

    What ever happened to innocent till proven guilty. My understanding is Dr. Bosworth has not been convicted of any crime. Maybe the conversation should be directed back to the EB-5 scandal. All Bosworth is doing is pointing out the scandals of Mike Rounds and Dennis Daugaard. If the signatures are invalid then why is she on the ballot. Maybe Gant and Jackley should be called into question.

  24. Tara Volesky 2014.05.27

    Again, if it wasn't for Cory, people wouldn't even know what the hell is going on. The media has once again failed us. If I was the publisher of a large newspaper I would offer Cory a job he couldn't refuse. But Cory, you are over qualified because you investigate the facts and these newspapers aren't interested in facts, they only want fluff.

  25. JeniW 2014.05.27

    Gant and Jackley already responded. Jackley is not going to do anything until after the primary to see if she wins the primary. Even if she does not win, IMO, he will not pursue it. He has nothing to gain or lose by not pursuing it (even though those of us Madizens know better.)

    Jackley has already taken a stance on the EB-5 scandal. He said nothing illegal was done by the Rounds administration other than Benda. Benda is dead, and dead men cannot tell tales.

  26. Nick Nemec 2014.05.27

    My bet is this is a tease for a press conference in front of the Planned Parenthood office complete with gory photographs. It's an attempt to garner more of the hard right vote prior to the election, maybe she'll include attacks against her opponents for being insufficiently pro-life.

  27. caheidelberger Post author | 2014.05.27

    Nick, your hypothesis makes sense. No one has gone hard in that direction yet, and it's a publicity stunt she hasn't tried. Of course, if she does, I'll need to get Hildebrand to help me find the evidence of her support for abortion rights prior to her and Chad's great GOP-Christian awakening.

  28. student 2014.05.27

    I am sure she will claim some politician got a massage and more from someone at this location

  29. Been There 2014.05.27

    Maybe they will have more pictures and stories about living in the rv. The stuff she put on Facebook, at the time, were pretty disgusting.

  30. caheidelberger Post author | 2014.05.27

    Tara, I have documented several crimes: raffle fraud, perjury on petition circulation oath, solicitation and acceptance of foreign contributions to federal campaign, use of non-profit resources for political purposes. With a little more research (or just a couple of sources going on the record), I can document more. Add in overall scammery, falsehood, and offensiveness, and we are well past "innocent until proven guilty" having any serious meaning in a discussion of Annette and Chad's sociopathy.

  31. WestRiver 2014.05.27

    Well, looks like she has her volunteers spray painting graffiti on the campaign signs she didn't use, much less pay for. In the background you can see the word b*tch and racist and Lora Hubbell comments that people should come and see 'what unaccountable bloggers get away with." Hmmm...well, if you don't like name calling Annette, don't do things that define you as such.

  32. student 2014.05.27

    So she is for the second amendment, but against the first?

  33. Roger Cornelius 2014.05.27

    Innocent until proven guilty is a legal term that does not apply to Bosworth since the esteemed SD attorney general has refused to bring charges against her.
    The court of public opinion as to her guilt or innocence will render their verdict in a couple of days.

  34. Roger Cornelius 2014.05.27

    Does innocent until proven guilty also apply to Mike Rounds and Dennis Daugaard when it comes to GOED/EB-5/NBP?

  35. Tara Volesky 2014.05.27

    Roger, you're right. We have a corrupt government that makes their own rules that benefits the establishment. This campaign has been such an eye-opener. I didn't realize how much power and control the government and media have over the people. There has been little information on the EB-5 scandals. People are so dumbed down. They don't even care anymore. It's very frustrating.

  36. Steve Sibson 2014.05.27

    Roger, the problem in Pierre is that the corruption is legal. They call it economic development, public/private partnerships, and capitalism. And don't believe what the SDGOP Establishment call capitalism is the same as a competitive free market.

  37. larry kurtz 2014.05.27

    Good to see you back on your meds, Steve.

  38. Roger Cornelius 2014.05.27

    Say what?

    Steve and I are in full agreement.

  39. Steve Sibson 2014.05.27

    Roger and larry, what you libs fail to see is that the big government you guys promote gives these Neo-Fascists even more power and wealth to control. What us true conservatives and Dems have in common is that our political disadvantage is directly caused by the legal corruption that create such large SDGOP Establishment campaign war chests.

  40. Roger Cornelius 2014.05.27

    What you wingnuts can't get out of your mind is that liberals are not in support of big government, I'm as liberal as you can get and do not support big and intrusive government.
    For forty years the Republicans in SD have supported an ever growing government that has been taxing and raising fees and given a whole new definition to economic development.
    In those forty years that Democrats have not had a voice in state government, Republicans have been able to give new meaning to crony capitalism and repeated attempts to legislate morality.
    Remember Steve, it was Rounds that grew this government, it was Daugaard/Rounds that instigated the Northern Beef Packers fraud and perhaps the murder of Richard Benda.
    Most interesting, with a week to go to election day, Republicans still cannot defines themselves as a state party. Over on the Rounds blog they at war against themselves trying to define a true conservative, a teapublican,a RINO, or just a plain old Republican.

    Steve, liberals or libbies did not create that mess in Pierre you call government.

  41. Bree S. 2014.05.27

    "Libs" support VACare for all.

  42. Jenny 2014.05.27

    Roger, when you say liberals don't support 'big government', what do you mean exactly? Don't you support Medicare? That is a 'big' government program.

  43. Roger Cornelius 2014.05.27

    Yes I support Medicare, Medicaid, Obamacare, and Medicaid Expansion.
    Republicans interpretations of big government are basically rejecting programs that help the needy, the elderly, and the children.
    Liberals are opposed to a big government that continually supports their socialized/economic assistance programs.
    Big government is here, both parties are guilty of making it grow, Republicans refuse to admit the growth and dependency that they have created.

  44. Jenny 2014.05.27

    I'm trying to understand what you're saying, Roger. How else would these programs be funded if not from taxpayer money? You support privatizing them and if so, how could that be done?

  45. Roger Cornelius 2014.05.27

    Are you advocating the repeal of all government health programs?

    When you ask about taxpayers paying for these programs, are you including the fact that the beneficiaries of these programs are often taxpayers themselves, with the exception of Medicaid.
    The way I see it, should America help people be healthy or do we help the wealthy become wealthier?

  46. Jenny 2014.05.27

    No, I don't support repealing govt healthcare programs.
